A report that MDC Deputy President Thokozani Khupe was called to Robert Mugabe’s Blue Roof residence has torched storm.
MDC Deputy President Khupe was reportedly called to Mugabe’s house in January this year. The report by the South Africa based Sunday Times, alleges that the former President called her to a meeting at his house weeks before MDC leader Morgan Tsvangirai’s death.
The development, if true could reveal that Mugabe has been taking several attempts to create a Coalition of political parties that will fight President Emmerson Mnangagwa. Khupe’s encounter would make her the 3rd opposition leader linked with Blue Roof after Mugabe’s removal. Others are Joice Mujuru and most recently Ambrose Mutinhiri, the leader of the New Patriotic Front, also called the National Patriotic Front.
Social networks were awash with the rumours Sunday morning with particularly WhatsApp forums upbeat on the debate of what may have happened soon afterwards. Khupe has for years been a favourite of the former leader from the days of the government of national unity.
Already other reports say that the former head of state is bitter concerning the way in which intelligence and police officers have been allegedly killed in the events of the last 4 months which saw him being removed from power.
We could not establish at the time of writing if she took up the invitation and physically visited the 94 year old deposed leader.
